On UFC Tonight recently, Chael Sonnen announced straight into the camera that his intentions were to drop back to middleweight after his upcoming bout with Mauricio Rua. In that division, a potential rival awaits his return.
There is no doubt that Vitor Belfort is worthy of a title shot right now after Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman duke it out. However, in the meantime, Belfort could throw down with a man he has traded shots in the media with in Sonnen.
Should the fight be booked in the near future, here is a head-to-toe-breakdown on a Sonnen-Belfort encounter.
